" Quality little tool! Ideal for tight spaces. I used it for digging out a couple of rotten fence posts with shrubs all around them and this little shovel made real light work of it. "

Very useful small spade
8 Apr 2015
By Bobnotbuilder
, York
" It's a good job it had a clear picture as I needed it for digging not as a shovel. It is pretty well ideal for planting daffodil (and other plant) bulbs in the green to naturalise in a lawn. It slits turf easily and can also dig holes quickly. I can see it being kept in the car boot in winter conditions too. It looks well made and reliable, but who knows this soon?
It's close enough to the ones they use to plant forests in Canada - even if our garden is not that big.
(Let's call a spade a spade, though!) "

By scotsengineeer

" I was fairly sure this shovel would do a good job, but when I came to use it for some close building work, for gardening, and taking kids to the beach , I realised what an absolutely brilliant product it is. I bought a second one. "

It's a small shovel!
13 Oct 2012
By FranticDIYer
, London
" Well, what can I say, expected this to last me the best part of a few days... I have had it a few months now, and have removed huge leylandii tree stumps and roots (9 in total), dug trenches for footings, removed concrete garden edging, dug out a concrete post and it's still going strong. A great little shovel perfect for garden work and getting under nasty roots like bramble and vines. I would wholly recommend this little shovel. The pointed tip and bent over back edges make it easy to drive into the ground with your foot. Really worth the money. "

Better than foldable ones.
15 Feb 2009
By Umboman
, Trowbridge,Wilts.
" Great for camping,fishing,landscaping,building or keep in the car for snow drifts or getter stuck in the mud.
Feels very solid,with a very comfortable rubberised d-shaped handle.For the price I would rather have this than a foldable one & will be ordering another one.Same design as used by The Royal Engineers in tunnel building in WW1-timelessly practical in confined spaces eg at the bottom of a deep hole.

" Nothing more to this that a well built little spade. Great when space is limited.
Ideal when a regular spade is too big *obviously*
Handy thing to have "

" Great little bit of kit. Good strong blade, though it has tarnised a bit already!

Versatile little spade
1 May 2011
By fincher
, Stroud
" The head of this micro spade is in proportion to the shaft so quite small but not too small to make it pointless for digging.
Great for tight spaces and trench digging.
Strong shaft and handle, good cutting edge on the spade head. "

By LittleDIYer

" Great for working in confined spaces, also for general use since I am 5 foot tall. I agree with previous reviewer that the blade flexes if asked to lever too much, but we should use a bigger spade for this. "

" Not a bad spade for the money i use mine for metal detecting after a week the spade was flexing in the middle cross ways then i noticed a fracture in the steel.
This spade is for light use only dont buy it thinking it will last for years if your gonna be digging alot !!
